Data Gap Call In Status and Specific Numerical Values
The Pesticide Contamination Prevention Act (PCPA) established a set of data requirements for identifying and tracking potential and actual groundwater contaminants. The PCPA directed DPR to establish specific numerical values and compare the data as a basis to estimate their relative risk to groundwater and to undertake a process to determine whether they have contaminated groundwater. The PCPA establishes procedures for reviewing chemicals found in groundwater or in soil as a result of legal agricultural use and for modifying or canceling use of such chemicals.
